Track Name: Girls Like You
You're a mess, and you know I abhor you.
Get over yourself, cuz this album's not for you.
This is my homecoming so get out of my life.
This is my homecoming, and you're not a part of it.

You may think I'm insane, but I'm just trying to explain that life's a little better without you.
You keep my words bittersweet, my lines intact and complete, because you know that I'm just writing to spite you.

On your last first date,
I hope he reminds you of me.
After all the sinners and snakes,
And liars and fakes,
The worst part about me's that I tell the truth about girls like you.

Darling you're not worth my time.

This new year's eve I guess I'll toast to myself,
While you buy your one way ticket straight to hell.
Tell the party scene I said hi, I really wish them well.
And I hope you think of me when you play show and swell.

You may think I'm insane, but I'm just trying to explain that life's a little better without you.
You keep my words bittersweet, my lines intact and complete, because you know that I'm just writing to spite you.

On your last first date,
I hope he reminds you of me.
After all the sinners and snakes,
And liars and fakes,
The worst part about me's that I tell the truth about girls like you.

Darling you're not worth my time.
Track Name: When The Rain Falls Down
Eyes like a hurricane,
That make me struggle to maintain,
Cuz you take my breath away.
So many letters left unsent,
So I wrote this song to document
The indescribable way
That I feel when I'm around you.
I can't put it into words, but I digress.

When the rain falls down I can feel it in the air.
Whoa oh and we're living without a care.
Oh how I'd love to have you here, by my side.
When the sun comes out, I can see it reflect in your eyes.
Whoa oh and your kiss caught me by surprise.
It'll be just you and me tonight, when the rain falls down.

You never make an effort to impress,
But always stick out from the rest,
And that is what impresses me.
Slip you this note and sign my name,
I'll see you at the V-ball game.
Three easy steps to let you see
How I feel when I'm around you.
I can't put it into words, but I digress.

When the rain falls down I can feel it in the air.
Whoa oh and we're living without a care.
Oh how I'd love to have you here, by my side.
When the sun comes out, I can see it reflect in your eyes.
Whoa oh and your kiss caught me by surprise.
It'll be just you and me tonight, when the rain falls down.
Track Name: Brick, Where'd You Get A Hand Grenade?
If we don't stay true to ourselves, then what's there left to fall back on?
If we don't get the job done, who's gonna sure it gets done long after we're gone.
Cuz we won't be around forever.
So let's make the most of our time together.

Let's live it up while we still can.
I face my problems man to man.

No one ever said that it'd be easy,
And if they did it was a lie.
No one ever said that it'd be easy.

We run it like a marathon,
All day, every day,
24/7, never minding what the haters say.
If you could relive your life from start to end,
Would you do it all over again?

We've got nothing to sell out for, so why would we give in?
We've fallen down, we got back up, and we'll do it again and again.
Cuz we will be sticking around for awhile.
So the least you could do is give us a smile.

Let's just be reckless while we can.
I'll face my problems man to man.

No one ever said that it'd be easy,
And if they did it was a lie.
No one ever said that it'd be easy.

We run it like a marathon,
All day, every day,
24/7, never minding what the haters say.
If you could relive your life from start to end,
Would you do it all over again?

Sit back, relax, we'll blow your mind.
Thanks for the gift of all your time.
We'll win them over one by one.
A fortunate consequence of doing what you love.

We run it like a marathon,
All day, every day,
24/7, never minding what the haters say.
If you could relive your life from start to end,
Would you do it all over again?
Track Name: Homecoming
So this is what it's come to,
An all time low even for me.
Our relationship is messed up, but
This isn't how things are supposed to be.
Passing out my phone number to strangers on the 'net.
It's time to turn my life around, cuz it's not over yet.

So remember where you came from,
And remember who you are.
Don't forget the folks who saved you,
You're a hand in the pitch-dark.
Because you seem to be blind to what's right in front of your eyes.
Let's bring this past life down in flames tonight.

I'm sick of hearing sermons of second chances, Homecoming dances,
This rut of mediocrity.
I was born for a greater purpose, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

So remember where you came from,
And remember who you are.
Don't forget the folks who saved you,
You're a hand in the pitch-dark.
Because you seem to be blind to what's right in front of your eyes.
Let's bring this past life down in flames tonight.

When it all comes down, when it all comes back around, I'll say,
"I've had enough of this place, I'm coming home."
Track Name: Complacency
I don't know if I've felt so strongly about anyone in my life.
I live for late nights on the lake, and you're the reason why.
You're the reason I'm getting better, this is the best I've ever felt.
You make me want to be a better version of myself.

But for two whole years, I just sat by,
Fully prepared to watch you marry another guy.

Cuz all I want is for you to be happy, and I miss you when
You are out west.
I count each night that passes by.

Can't go on without you by my side.
I swear it'll be different this time.
(I swear I'm not like him)
Regretting secrets til the day I die.
(I'm not)
I'm spilling my guts tonight.
Track Name: The Best is Yet To Come
So happy together, or at least we used to be.
Whatever happened to the former you and me?
So tell me, do you remember when we used to share our dreams?
Not so long ago, and yet so distant those memories seem.

I know that I'm not perfect and it's so hard to forgive.
But you're ripping me to pieces and I've forgotten what it feels like to live.
All I ever wanted was to make up for the things I've done.
It's time to put the past behind us; the best is yet to come.

So please tell me, baby, that I'm good enough for you.
Cuz I'm anything but perfect but have nothing left to lose.
Now I'm running out of options, tell me, what are you trying to prove?
I'm more than prepared to pay for my actions; all there's left for you to do:

I know that I'm not perfect and it's so hard to forgive.
But you're ripping me to pieces and I've forgotten what it feels like to live.
All I ever wanted was to make up for the things I've done.
It's time to put the past behind us; the best is yet to come.
Track Name: Baxter & Sinclair
Let's run away to a quiet and far away place.
You're one step ahead so I guess I'll come over and stay the night.
Sneak in the back door, with the noise covered by your dad's snores.
Then we'd just sit and talk for hours in your bedroom floor. Either that or
We'd stay up all night, watching Netflix and afterwards, I
Would move in for our first kiss and you'd deny.
We know that we'll never be in love but we can pretend now and then.

Lets get tattooed, sit on your mom's couch in the nude.
Just cuz we can and forget her for saying that's rude.

I just want the chance I never got.
It's not too much, or so I thought.
But you've hurt me in more ways than I knew that any human could.
You discard this, and leave me heartless, bleeding out on the floor.
I always loved you more.

I'm so lonely, so baby come home to me.
Don't leave me to bleed out on the floor.
I always loved you more.
Track Name: One in A Million
Dress to impress,
To cover up your loneliness,
To hide the scars from where your dreams were crushed when you were young.
Believe in me,
And forget about your insecurities,
Trust the words that are spilling off my tongue.

You don't have to know me,
To know I'm the one.
I'm this make-believe town's favorite make-believe son.

I'm not your knight in shining armor.
You're no damsel in distress.
I wish we could just start over,
And forget about the rest.
And all the ones who helped us get this far will watch us fall.
I guess love's one in a million after all.

You're moving on;
I'm moving out.
Should I force love or do without?
You make me wanna scream and shout
Because you keep me wanting more.
Well all that matters is what I think of you and you of me,
So why are we spending all our time
Acting like who we're supposed to be?

You don't have to know me to know I'm the one.
I'm this make-believe town's favorite make-believe son.

I'm not your knight in shining armor.
You're no damsel in distress.
I wish we could just start over,
And forget about the rest.
And all the ones who helped us get this far will watch us fall.
I guess love's one in a million after all.
Track Name: Five Minutes Before The Miracle Happens
This is the story of a boy and girl who fell so hard and fast.

Hey there, I think I recognize you from the line outside that Fall Out Boy show in Atlanta four years or so ago.
I thought they said believers never die, but desperation's in your eyes,
And you don't look so happy with the way that things turned out.

(But you can't let them drag you down, though half the world will try.
And if you're one of them, then I've got 7 billion better ways to waste my time.)

[This is the story of a boy and girl,
Who fell so hard and fast,
That they couldn't help but find themselves inside the pages of the greatest story ever told.
Cut my hair and cut my ties.
(Would I be any better off or just a martyr for your cause?)
Fall on swords to end our lives.
(And send us straight to Hell, might as well)
Tell me how to live my life.
(No matter what, you'll never bring me down.)]

And they all got plastered on the 21st, hoping that the world would end, so they wouldn't have to wake up.
Meanwhile, I sat in my bedroom alone, praying just to see another day, so I would finally have the chance to sing this song.

[chorus]

This is my time, this is my time to shine.

I lose a little faith every time a child says "I can't live my dream. I'll compromise my destiny, I'm throwing in the towel." When never becomes now, what will they say? When they realize they've thrown it all away. (have faith)"We might be the ones, we're changing everything."
"Anything is possible. Don't count us out."
